Eight years later, the duo moved to Italy with their sights set on creating their own brand. After collaborating with some of Italy’s most celebrated fashion houses, in 1995 the designers presented their first men’s collection under the label DSquared2.Since then, the brand has become known for its intelligent mix of irreverent Canadian wit, refined Italian tailoring, and playful sensuality that create a notion of “alternative luxury”.
